When I deployed a baremetal node under the manual, I didn't get it to work. I have checked the /tftpboot directory and the kernel and ramdisk have been downloaded successfully, and in nova/instance the image can also be found. I can't see any error message in the nova-compute log.

But the machine which the baremetal node is deployed got the error like this PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cable. ... Operating System not found after it is reset.

And from 'nova list' I found the instance state is stopped at 'BUILD', doesn't change to 'DEPLOY'. I looked up the manual and noticed the nova-baremetal-deploy-helper service is responsible for the deployment. But my nova-baremetal-deploy-helper service didn't run. Even I start it manually, nothing changed. I want to know how to make nova-baremetal-deploy-helper run itself, did I miss something in the configuraton? I am using the latest openstack source on Ubuntu 12.04.

I solved this problem. This is caused by the hardware. One port of the hub doesn't work fine. And now I got the nova-baremetal-deploy-helper to run.
